Many major firms have a team dedicated to hiring and monitoring employees, known as HR, or Human Resource Management. When it comes to HR positions, these organizations frequently look for candidates who have received CHRA certification.

What is CHRA?
CHRA, or Certified Human Resource Associate, is a 3-hour assessment testing basic human resource knowledge. The assessment is administered by HREAP, The Human Resource Educators’ Association of the Philippines, Inc.

The assessment consists of two sets. Set 1 covers recruitment and selection, workplace learning and development, compensation and benefits, performance management, job analysis and design, and risk management. Set 2 focuses on labor and HR-related laws. Each set has a passing mark of 50%. While this assessment is highly regarded for HR job applications in distinguished companies, CHRA is not a professional license or civil service eligibility. It simply certifies an individual’s skills in the field of human resources.

Who can take this assessment?

  • Graduates or bachelor’s degree holders in Human Resource or related fields such as BS/AB Psychology, Guidance & Counseling, Organizational Management, Behavioral Science, Public Administration, Legal Management, and Law/Juris Doctor.
  • Graduates of MA Psychology, MBA Major in HR, and MPA Major in Personnel Administration.
  • Any degree holder with at least one year of HR-related working experience.
